This is a welcome revised and enhanced second edition of this comprehensive, accurate and honest account of the fascinating TSR2 story, tracing the project's development from its origins in the 1950's.
Aimed at aviation historians and those interested in the history of military technology, the book examines the TSR2 project in detail, eliminating the many myths and misconceptions that have surrounded the aircraft for decades. Although much has been written about the TSR2's history, a great deal of misinformation has been published on this subject which this book dismisses presenting the reader with a complete and realistic overview of the entire project.
This book deals with the facts and not the emotion, speculation and fantasy which has plagued the subject for so long. It presents a detailed, factual and very readable account of the development and subsequent demise of TSR2 project.
